Trouble adding DBAN to the PXE boot menu
I’ve been able to pxe boot and image machines without a problem for awhile now and I figured I would add DBAN to my pxe boot menu so I don’t have to throw cd’s in the machines anymore.
Alright, I’ve been following this guide:
So, the steps he says that need to be done to properly add an iso to the boot menu
- I have a working version of fog
- I’ve edited TFTP password under the fog UI to match all the rest of my passwords [/URL]I’ve used on the server (all passwords on my isolated server are named “password” for ease)
- I have a copy of dban-2.2.7_i586.iso which I renamed to dban.iso.
- I copied the memdisk file from /tftpboot to put into my dban folder
I created a folder named dban in /tftpboot/fog. I then pasted the memdisk file into that folder along with the dban.iso file. I then proceeded to edit my /tftpboot/pxelinux.cfg file to add this in.
MENU MASTER PASSWD password
append iso initrd=fog/dban/dban.iso raw
MENU LABEL dban

Now when I pxe boot I can see the dban option but when I click on it the screen just flickers and I’m still in the fog menu. Any help would be appreciated, thanks in advance.
The embarrassment I’m feeling is overwhelming… I read your reply at least 10 times thinking it said the exact same thing when it hit me… Thanks though, it’s working great now! Boot nuking all those machines with ease.
